with respect, i have been compiling programs for years and still do so
frequently - you might remember i have been trying cvs alsa at various
stages (on a different HDD)
the reason i have rpms is because i did an upgrade install of mandrake
9.0 - it put them there for me.
now to remove them from rpm records i need to try and use rpm where
possible until the system is clean, otherwise i end up with these conflicts.
tbh i use tarballs where possible and rpm where lazy. according to
marcel gagne, the best sysadmins are lazy ;-)
